Allowable uses of moneys in the account include responding to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic including those related to education, human services, health care, and the economy, and recovery from natural disasters. In addition, the legislature may appropriate from the account to continue activities begun with, or augmented with, COVID-19 related federal funding.
